Bali 4: Early jockeying for position

After the good win against India the women found it tougher against Poland and USA1, both likely qualifiers for the knock out stages. Today features theoretically easier matches although our final opponents of the day, New Zealand, have started well. At this early point we are in a qualifying position.

The open team had a tough day after an encouraging opening win against India. The loss against South Africa leaves them outside the qualifying positions at this early stage.

Away from the bridge there is a need to keep a close eye on the number of zeros in the currency. Eating is quite cheap, drinking wine quite expensive. Its hard to cope with a final bill for, say, five at dinner and say "good value, only 1.2 million" To add fun some notes for widely diverging amounts are very similar. The waiters are more practised at recounts than election tellers!
